Derek and I are truly honored to have made it to the finals again this year. I’m thrilled the first two issues of Glimpses of Life are finalists! These issues continue where my graphic novel, The Big Year, leaves off. With the birth of my second daughter, Izzy, (and on the suggestion of my wife, Amy) I decided to continue to make journal comics to chronicle the exciting, sleep deprived moments of life with a newborn. These first two issues cover about the first month with Izzy. At the end of the day, Amy was right, there are a ton of great moments that come about with a baby and I’m very glad I kept making journal comics to capture them all. I had a lot of fun putting these books together and feel very honored to have these comics in the company of all the other great finalists.

The winners will be announced during SPACE 2018 on Saturday, April 28th. SPACE is easily one of our favorite comic conventions to attend and if you live near Columbus, OH and haven’t checked it out yet you’re missing out. It’s a great convention filled to the brim with awesome indie and small press comics. SPACE is a free two day event that’s held on April 28th and 29th this year.

Don’t miss out on all the great comics at SPACE. In the meantime, keep your fingers crossed for us.
